Amazingly Informative.....Highly Educational, Deeply Insightful Book..
I Was blown away , i must admit...all the way..
The way Rujuta has peeled away the layers and layers of prevailing nutritional & exercise myths/fads in our society that are very far from the truth, revealing the beautiful science behind is really worth a standing ovation,in my opinion.
With a deep understanding of the human physiology and kinesiology , the holistic approach suggested by the author , offering insightful,sound scientific backup every step of the way.... is what captivated me through the entire book..
The Fatloss myths of our society ,The Aerobic & Anaerobic metabolism,Training in the Lactate Threshold,FITT Principle, etc with their specific advantages and how the Elite,smart fitness pros exploit them.. was explained in a way that even a layman...(of course an english speaking one)
can easily understand..is Brilliant.
The book is loaded with myth busting principles..
How Cardio in the morning does not help fatloss..,
How Aerobics might work against the very attempt of fatloss if not combined with anaerobic exercises,
All in all...this book is a MUST-if you are a fitness enthusiast...coz you will know the science behind the principles
(FITT, EPOC, VO2 Max,4R , Metabolic pathways, Type 1-2 fibres, Isotonic vs Eccentric contraction,Insulin sensitivity,Resting Metabolism, RPE, Glycogenolysis, etc...etc..),
and is an ABSOLUTE..MUST -If you are NOT a fitness enthusiast,
coz you will Then have the exhilarating joy of seeing all your myth bubbles getting busted..
Thank you Rujuta , for such a wonderful book...
The book is a misnomer.
The title -" Wishes fulfilled through Jesus & Christianity.. " is more apt and would have done more justice to represent the book's content.
Not getting me ?? yeah...i thought so..let me introduce to you,some excerpts from the book :
"..........perhaps it is a radical idea for you to declare," i am god & god is love" or believe that " He who abides in love abides in god, and god in him " (1 john 4:16) is who you are. when you are this god, this essence o pure love, it is all you have to give away, and when you realign yourselves in this vein (once again quoting Juesus the Christ,)" With men this is impossible,but with God all things
are possible " Now, all things are possible leaves out nothing including your ability fulfil any and all wishes that are aligned with God.
".......Every time you think of the expression I AM, you initiate God in action.why not continually remind yourself that I LIVE , MOVE,AND HAVE MY BEING AS GOD, THE I AM THAT I AM?If you are a christian or Jewish, you will see that these tidings of spiritual truth i am delivering here are dramatically harmonised with your core teachings....."
Seriously ....i summoned my iron will (lost in the battle of understanding the book's content) and Tried so hard to actually go through the immense Pain of reading this book.. which was but futile, and proved to be too much an effort..
lost somewhere in the middle of the ocean of quotations from The Bible,
Suddenly did the insight struck up on me like a thunderbolt and my the then emaciated cerebral hemispheres realised that i am NOT reading The Bible..., but a book concerned with the process of fulfilling my wishes.believe me ...it was the happiest moment all through the journey of reading this book and i said goodbye to the book.....
with tears of joy in my eyes..
Seriously guys....if you belong to any other religion, then this book will bore you to death...Period.
And if you are a regular in church activities, you will love the book ,
But sure will FORGET THE ACTUAL REASON...you picked up the book.
For me, its a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT.
